Very much looking forward to Sunday's screening.

"I hope his next film comes sooner than six to eight years from now."

I first became aware of Dan Sallitt when he was the chief film critic of the L.A. Reader. It was was the mid-80s at U.S.C. film school and all my chums, budding Scorseses and Speilbergs all, thought I was nuts for following some weird critic who was recommending DAISY KENYON and Penn's THE CHASE and what not.

This was in the day when there was a million rep and art houses in L.A. and, coupled with the plethora of screenings on campus, was a brilliant time to be a cinephile. Mr. Sallitt's reviews validated and guided me at the time and I am very grateful. Will need to seek out his films, though I wonder if they will make Seattle, which, needless to say, doesn't have a million rep and art houses, at least not any more.
